Every night after I get my boys to bed, I have a bowl of ice cream. I'm not trying to lose weight, but I have been trying to reduce dairy a bit and switch to only organic dairy (at least at home). I know there's organic ice cream, but it's pricey and I like to buy "fun" flavors anyway (bring on the cookie chunks and fudge swirls!) which I haven't seen in organic. I know I could get an ice cream maker and make my own, but I feel like the cost of organic ingredients will still be quite a bit more than what I usually buy (I generally buy whatever brand is on sale for ~$2.99/1.5qt).
So.... I need tips for other nighttime treats that are inexpensive and not junky. I don't mind sugar/fat/calories, I just don't want non-organic stuff that I should be buying organic, or mile-long ingredients lists. I love healthy stuff too, especially frozen fruit lately, but I've been spending a lot on produce already. I know about the frozen-banana ice cream but we live in a raised ranch so I don't think I can run the blender while the kids are sleeping. I sometimes make homemade popsicles from fruit and yogurt, but sometimes I want something a little more sinful.
